Overview
-

You'll Be Hearing from Us is a detailed investigation into Operation Anthropoid and its consequences. Operation Anthropoid was a Special Operations Executive operation with the aim of assassinating a high ranking German official in what was now known as the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia. Politically motivated it was raised at the instigation of the Czech Government-in-Exile. It covers the escape of the men from Czechoslovakia and their time in France before escaping again to the UK.

The book also covers their selection, training and return to Czechoslovakia. The target for the assassination was SS-Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich who was probably seen by many high ranking Nazis as a future leader and architect of the Final Solution.

The book covers the preparations for the operation, its actual execution, , the manhunt for the perpetrators and the aftermath of the attack including the destruction of the villages of Lidice and Ležáky. Also included is a translation of the Gestapo report on the assassination together with a number of photographs from that report.
